    Abstract

    When designing bridges located in seismic hazard zones, the final design has to be determined by taking into consideration the functionality of the post-disaster road network. The effect of inelastic bridge behavior on the deterioration of the functionality of a road network after an earthquake needs to be incorporated in the seismic analysis. This paper deals with risk-based seismic design of RC bridges to ensure a specified postdisaster functionality of the road network. Computational results show that compared with bridges designed to minimize the seismic life-cycle cost, bridges designed taking into consideration the requirement of post-disaster traffic capacity of a road network need to have a higher seismic performance.
